Employee Spotlight: Haylan Washington

Haylan Washington Crop

Systems and Network Administrator

Haylan Washington joined the Patriot Rail team in 2016 and serves as Systems and Network Administrator. He takes great pride in supporting Patriot Rail team members with their technology needs including email, phones, internet connectivity, automation, application integration, and most importantly – cyber security.

“To me, the Patriot Rail Track to Excellence (T2E) culture means that there is not one role more important than the other; we all play a vital part in the company’s success. It’s about performing our jobs efficiently and effectively.”

Haylan most enjoys that his role allows him to have a high-level view of how the team works together. In order to be a problem solver and solutions provider, he must understand processes, workflow, and how individuals perform their tasks.

When Haylan is not protecting the team from cyber threats and ensuring that IT processes are running smoothly, he enjoys BBQing and spending time with his family.

The Patriot Employee Spotlight Award is presented to team members who are nominated by their peers for consistently upholding Patriot’s values and for putting safety above all else.
